I'd be surprised if the real-life trim wheel resistance varies significantly between the Max and the NG in any configuration, given the similar aerodynamics.

Of course on the NG, in the absence of MCAS, having to model accurately the effect of the combination of full AND stab trim and Up elevator in the sim probably sounded a crazy idea that would never happen in real life.
